Arsenal rookie in Spanish clubs wishlist

Arsenal defender Pedro Botelho who is yet to feature for the Gunners in a competitive fixture ever since joining them back in 2007, has attracted interest from a host of Spanish clubs.

The 22 year old Brazilian joined Arsenal from Figueirense in 2007 and has ever since been sent out on loan spells to five different clubs in Spain. He has played for Salamanca, Celte Vigo, Cartagena, Rayo Vallecano and Levante for brief periods over the last five years. However, during his stint with Levante in the La Liga he impressed many with his performances and it is believed the Valencia club would be keen on securing a permanent move for the defender.

According to Spanish newspaper Las Provincias, Levante will have to ward off interest from fellow Spanish clubs Deportivo La Coruna and Hercules along with a few Brazilian sides as well. Botelho, who can also play in the midfield, is eager to move to Spain but it remains to be seen if Arsenal let him go.
